Loving Ourselves, Too

“The things of the world become translated into that which supports your ever-increasing joy, success, fun, pleasure, material improvement and new friends.  It supports all of it when you see through the eyes of Love.  Then you literally look at the world around you and finally get that it was never what you thought it was because you failed to separate yourself from God.

“Everything you see is there to support your happy experience.  You are free to live in your highest joy, to ask for what you want, and to open the heart and love.  And the universe will respond according to the beliefs you hold about yourself, within yourself.”  “The Way of Knowing,” in Way of Mastery

We need to have a fresh understanding of ourselves by seeing ourselves through the eyes of our own precious love.  This is not selfish.  This is not egoic.  As God’s children, we are precious in His eyes.  Are we not dishonoring our Father Himself when we drag ourselves down with self-esteem issues?

When we focus on the positive in this beautiful world, we see only the beauty.  The ugliness fades, though we can always say a little prayer that our brothers and sisters also live in a better world.  When we believe that we are really OK, through and through, the universe responds with that better vision.  The book, I’m OK, You’re OK, says it all in the title.  When we realize that we, and our fellow men and women, are created in the image of God, we know that our debased self-image has to be given up.

We get what we believe on the inside.  Belief creates the world that we see, including supporting our place in this world.

When we form a new attitude that invites joy, we will experience this joy.

And we will never want to return to any lesser way of experiencing life.

  1. I need this truth so much right now. With all I have learned and all I have overcome in my long life, Istill struggle with this one. I can’t quite bring myself to fully believe that I’m good enough to deserve the happiness I want. Logically, yes, I know I do deserve this, but something invisible still stands blocking this path. I know it’s the past, and not true, but it stands there like a mountain range impossible to cross, though I try and try like Sisyphus, to do the work. It still remains unfinished. Will we seek and never find, all our lives? Is this the way it’s meant to be? Your wisdom comes from a deep place. If you have the answer…

    1. You are a cherished child of God, but you have to forgive yourself of mistakes, or you will not feel this inwardly.

      This truth comes from A Course in Miracles, which I have studied for many, many years. A Course in Miracles does not countenance “sins,” believing that we cling to them in our mind, thinking that we have committed the unpardonable. We have not, we are still innocent and completely worthy of the love of God, the love of our brothers and sisters, and our own love.

      Love, Celia
